Farmers Markets

We urge you to visit Arlington’s farmers markets and support our local farmers and vendors who continue to adapt to new safety guidelines during the ongoing COVID crisis. Some experienced hardship as farmers lost other markets like restaurants, schools and institutions when they closed. Visit the farmers market websites to learn about their current guidelines, operational adjustments, and pre-ordering opportunities.

Arlington has 8 farmers markets in 2023. View a map of all the farmers markets and find one near you. Download handout on Arlington and nearby farmers markets.
